  1. I am came home from work one day and the BSOD was on the screen. AFter that no signal to monitor, no power to keyboard or mouse. So i thought maybe the vid card was out so i put in a new one - nothing. So i replaced the motherboard battery - nothing. Need help, hard drive crashed? motherboard shot?

    Sounds like a mobo problem to me (assuming you're gettting some power to the motherboard).

    Do you get any beeps when you turn it on? Are you fans spinning? Tell us exactly what happens when you hit the power button.

    And more importantly, if you want some help you have to fill in your profile and tell us your system specs.

    I couldhn't have said it better myself DonNagual, filling in your profile would help tremendously. Beforeoyu do that I(we) can't help you much further.

    Do you have any situations that have brought upon this? New hardware/software installed?

    ANY help yoiu can give is appreciated

    powderedtoast, we need to know more about your system before we can even guess what could be wrong, but here is a hint.

    Do you have your user's manual for your motherboard? If not, go to the maker's website and download it. All motherboards have codes for those beeps, and are specific for certain errors. Your computer giving two beeps means something.

    Same thing happened to me as well, only fans spinning but no HDD action no monitor signal, and the problem was simply that my ram came unseated from a move I had done. You just never know what the cause is for sure, until you go through the troubleshooting.

    no user manual its probably to old to find a manual. the beeps clearly mean somthing i was wondering if anyone knew what they meant.when the keyboard is plugged in it is a kb/interface error but when unplugged its only a keyboard error? this mean anything ?? thanks
